Penn State Football: Barkley Set To Host Youth Camp In State College
Saquon Barkley will be back in State College next month as the former All-American and New York Giants star is set to host a youth football camp.
Officially named The Saquon Barkley Football ProCamp, it will be held from 9 a.m. to noon on May 18 and 19 at Penn State’s Holuba Hall.
According to camp literature, participants will "learn fundamental football skills and have the opportunity to meet and interact with the star running back." Each camper will receive a limited-edition camp t-shirt, a souvenir autograph, and a team photo with Barkley.
Barkley will be on-site to direct the event and will be joined by a selection of prep and college coaches from the area. The camp is open to boys and girls of all skill levels in grades 1-8.
Registration and more information is available at SaquonBarkleyCamp.com.
While Barkley has been seen in State College since leaving Penn State for the NFL, this event will be the first official function of Barkley's back in Happy Valley. After being selected No. 2 overall in the NFL draft by the Giants, Barkley ran for just over 1,300 yards while pulling down 721 yards receiving on 91 receptions, earning Rookie of the Year honors.
